Has it been over 2 years since I bragged about my Leo horse!?!?

Howdy, Barb ~~

My last horse came from a sell barn, he was off a working ranch in Mexia, Texas... few weeks his papers caught up with me, he was direct from Leo, Joe Reed, Joe Reed II...


He was absolutely the well behaved horse I have ever ever had!

I am sorry for not posting here like a million years ago - I have physical pains that are just not letting up!

Plus I'm getting all my teeth floated -   naw, just extracting them all in 2 weeks woo-hoo!

Pacific Bailey

Gold Pacific - Gold King Bailey X Nell Bert McCue - Wyatt McCue
1963; AQHA - 325585 

A  truly great race horse, Pacific Bailey had the unique combination of speed, athleticism and good looks.  With a SI-100, Pac had 24 starts with 13 wins, 4 seconds & LTEs of $15,073. In the process, he was a stakes winner & set 4 track records. In the show ring, he earned 24.0 halter points with 7 grands & 6 reserves. 

Pacific Bailey  was an AQHA Champion by the age of four with a race ROM [earned in 1965] & a Superior in racing [earned in 1966].  

His foals picked up where he left off. He was a leading sire of race ROM qualifiers, & his performers included stakes winners, Superiors [race, performance & halter], arena ROMs, AQHA Champions [open & youth] as well as World & reserve World Champions. Pacific Bailey sired more AQHA foals than any other horse in the 20th century.

What can you do with a Pacific Bailey pedigree? Anything you want to!

Rutland Ranch February 18, 2007 9:44 AM

I've always been a fan of Rutland Ranch horses. Horse breeding is said to be an art. In that respect, I think some people are artists when it comes to selectively breeding stock. I believe Guy Ray Rutland was another one of those people. Below is some of his "handy work".

I realize I haven't added to this thread in quite a while. What with breeding season upon us & mares coming in to be bred to our stallions, I find myself, more often than usual, thinking about bloodlines. Sooo...

I thought I'd knock the cobwebs off this thread.  If anyone else would like to jump in, please feel free!

Jackie Bee
AQHA #0205387, grey stallion 
1962 - 1990
Jimmy Mac Bee - Sonny Day Bee X Jackie Diane - Jack R
 Jackie Bee
Considered to be 100% foundation breeding, Jackie Bee was a good minded, good looking, roping horse who sired some exceptional show horses. His foals included 12 Superior Halter horses, 91 Arena ROMs, 8 Superior Performance horses, 16 AQHA Champions, 3 World Champions, & 4 Reserve World Champions.  
Jackie Bee's daughters were/are exceptional producers & are still sought after by many breeders.
Jackie Bee
Below is a bit more info from the Tee Jay Quarter Horses site:   
 The Tee Jay Quarter Horse Ranch is located in Central Kansas at the home of Duane and Jo Walker. The ranch was home to many outstanding horses but the most remembered and loved was Jackie Bee.  

    In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s Jackie Bee worked his way into the halter horse game by producing horses that carried quite a bit of muscle on a large frame.  These horses also had good, stout feet and legs.  In the 1970’s Jackie Bees offspring, Tee Jay Janie, Tee Jay Badger Bee, and Tee J Black Jill, just to name a few, dominated the halter horse world.  Many of these horses by Jackie Bee earn many awards including AQHA World Champion, AQHA High-Point, and Superior halter horse. 

    Jackie Bee was also known for being a sire of performance horses.  In the 1980’s the look of halter horse changed and became more refined.  Since Jackie Bees were always bred to work the demand for performance horses in the arena grew. Horses such as: Tee J Ro Bee, Tee Jay Roman, Tee Jay Jack Steel, Tee J Robin Bee and many more, went on to earn new titles in the arena.  Included in those titles were AQHA Champion, AQHA High-Point and point earners in many performance events such as, calf roping, reining working cow horse western pleasure.

Old Fred
Black Ball - Missouri Rondo X  John Crowder mare - John Crowder
1893 - 1915
A noted broodmare sire, Old Fred was linebred to Steel Dust. With lots of chrome [sabino &/or splash?] & palomino color, he was flashier than many of the popular horses we see from that era. A major influence on the Quarter Horse breed as well as Paints & Appaloosas, Old Fred is an AQHA Hall of Fame inductee.

Thanks, Trish! I've been a pedigree junkie from waaaay back. As a kid, I could recite the bloodlines of horses my grandfather & grand-uncle raced. Had a problem with the "mon" & "dad" thing, though... I knew it was one or the other but...

Hey, it's priorities!

Nick Shoemaker
Nick - Sheik  X  Slipalong Wiescamp - Lani Chief (Tb)
1939 - 1948; AQHA - 1,095
Bred by J.W. Shoemaker & used as a calf roping horse, he was purchased by Hank Wiescamp as a four year old. Although a pasture accident caused an untimely death, his influence in Wiescamps breeding program is still alive & strong today. Of 62 registered foals, he sired race & show ROMs, an AQHA Champion & perhaps most important of all, sons & daughter capable of passing along these championship qualities.  His most noted son was "Skipper W".

One of the most versatile Quarter Horse lines is the "Skipper W" family. They ride & they halter. Of course not everyone loves them... they "think", too!

Skipper W
Nick Shoemaker - Nick  X  Hired Girl - Cowboy
1945 - 1963; AQHA - 7,964

Hank Wiescamp was a horseman & probably one of the most opinionated ones you'd ever want to meet. While he disagreed with many of AQHA's rules [like the white rule] he probably influenced the modern Q-Horse more than any other breeder. Wiescamp was often unconventional but he had an excellent eye & the confidence to take chances... and succeed. 

His great homebred stallion, Skipper W, was a Grand Champion halter horse who began a dynasty. From 132 registered Quarter Horse foals,  the highly respected stallion sired 13 AQHA Champions, 18 Arena ROMs, 4 Race ROMs, 7 Superior Halter, and 1 Superior Performance. Still today, the term "Skipper W" horse demands respect.
